This morning’s devotional is offered by Ruth Finch.
It was during my early childhood that I began to read the Bible that I called,” My Letter from God.” My influence came from my father who also loved the scriptures. When God calls us to remember Him, He shows us where we can look to receive His ongoing power for the Christian life. His primary avenues for sacred remembrance are these: hearing his voice; having his ear and belonging to His body. Where our habits are, there our hearts will be also.
Prayer is our responding to God in view of what He has said to us in His Word. God speaks through the scriptures. The words are the voice of God. You might say that the coming together of Word, prayer and fellowship in corporate worship are the single most important habit of Christian life.
As John the Baptist prepared the way for Jesus, so Jesus prepared the way for us to the Father. Let us prepare our hearts for the coming of the Lord.
